New School and Division Website Going LIVE Tuesday, April 3

We’re springing into action this Spring Break … even though schools are officially closed.

Suffolk Public Schools will be launching a new division website and new websites for each school.   Expected to “go live” on Tuesday, April 3, the web URL addresses will not change for the division site or for any of the school sites.

Our new websites are designed to maximize functionality and ease of use for web visitors.  They will bring students, parents, staff, and community members news and information in a more concise, consistent fashion.

The new designs showcase information in an easier-to-read format including “quick links” to our most popular content.  We’re confident you’ll find the new websites easier to use and find the information important to you.

The new websites use responsive web design services to ensure its website can be easily read and navigated on a wide range of devices, from desktops to mobile phones and tablets.  The websites will also meet federal ADA compliance making information accessible to individuals with disabilities.

The division and school websites were last updated in 2010.   We are expanding our relationship with School Messenger, which has provided the division’s parent notification system since 2012.  School Messenger will now be hosting the new sites and providing support.

A mobile app for Suffolk Public Schools — which pulls information from the new web pages — will be ready to launch by June.
